The New York Yankees (29-20) completed the three-game sweep of the Cincinnati Reds (19-27) with a 4-1 victory on Sunday afternoon at Great American Ball Park. 

New York fell behind 1-0 in the first inning, but the offense woke up in the middle innings, scoring four unanswered runs, thanks to the long ball. 

Harrison Bader crushed a two-run home run, his fourth of the season. Gleyber Torres smacked his seventh homer while Anthony Volpe added a two-out RBI double. 

Luis Severino made his season debut and pitched very well. The righty gave up one run on four hits over 4 2/3 innings while walking one and striking out five. 

The bullpen was lights out again as Albert Abreu, Jimmy Cordero, Wandy Peralta, and Clay Holmes had scoreless appearances. 

The Yankees will get the day off Monday before they open a three-game series with the second-place Baltimore Orioles Tuesday at Yankee Stadium. The first pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
